I approached Ian Welsh of Boatshed Poole in August 2014 to sell my Rib. With the guidance offered from Ian Welsh and the Boatshed Poole Team I found the initial paperwork and required information very easy to compile. I was also given valuable assistance to establish an accurate asking price for the Rib. The viewings were conducted efficiently and I was always given comprehensive feedback from the comments made by the prospective buyers. I was given an accurate assessment on the best course of action to take concerning the adjustment of the price and the offers subsequently made by the prospective buyers. Eventually, the Rib sold in early May 2015. I was pleased with the figure it realised and the final documentation required by the buyer was compiled and completed efficiently by Jane Wilkins of Boatshed Poole. Overall, I found the sale of my Rib a very painless process due entirely to the efforts of the team at Boatshed Poole and I would thoroughly recommend other boat owners in the vicinity, who wish to sell their boats, to engage the services of the Boatshed Poole.

Just a note to thank you for the successful and commendably quick sale of my boat. I feared that she might be difficult to place, but you seem to have managed remarkably well! May the rest of your business be equally fortunate.

BOATSHED POOLE were helpful responsive and easy to deal with. I appreciated the guidance, support and positive approach to negotiation.

I would not hesitate to recommend Boatshed Poole when selling a boat. I found them efficient, professional & friendly. They gave a good presentation of my boat. The communication throughout was up to date, very good & informative.

- Ted | Boatshed Poole

Just a brief note to extend a big thank you for your assistance in my recent purchase of the Etap 30. Negotiations could have been a difficult due to the owner now living abroad but I was delighted with the way you were able to overcome the communication issues and effect a speedy and trouble free purchase on my behalf. I also appreciated your personable and professional manner and the help given by Jane in the office. If in the future I need a brokerage service I will certainly be knocking on the door of Boatshed Poole, once again my grateful thanks.

Jeanneau Leader 705 Purchase As a relative newbie to boating, Ian at Boatshed Poole helped simplify every step of my purchase, helping to arrange basics such as a survey & sea trial, but also going the extra mile by filling with fuel for my trip home and arranging for a local fisherman to guide me out of a potentially hazardous marina on an early tide. Always quick to reply to calls & mails and having a 'can do' attitude, I would have no hesitation in recommending.

I have just purchased a superb fast fishing boat, a Seafox 256 using Boatshed Poole, the service of Jane and Ian was very good, not just arranging viewings but handling the organisation of a survey and all the financial transaction. The details of the boat advertised on line were very accurate and the photographs did not portray anything but the facts. The whole experience was easy and enjoyable from start to finish, I would not hesitate to use or recommend Boatshed Poole again. Alex, Chef and now catching my own fish

In October 2014 I contacted BoatShedPoole regarding a Cornish Crabber Yawl, they had for sale on their site. I rapidly arranged a viewing of the boat with Ian Welsh. He was very helpful and thoroughly professional. Regarding a couple of my questions he did not know the answers to he quickly found out the answers. Jane Wilkins has also been a point of email contact, she too has been very helpful throughout the process. Both Jane and Ian were easy to contact and responded very quickly. I seem to recall I made an offer on the same day as viewing the boat. From my point of view an excellent price was agreed with the vendor, negotiated by Ian, within a short space of time. The sale was subject to survey. All the arrangements for the surveyor were handled efficiently. Ian negotiated a reduction in the price to my satisfaction, based on the survey. He then was very helpful in advising and supporting me to arrange the stepping of the masts, securing her for transport to North Devon etc. I would thoroughly recommend BoatShedPoole to other people looking to buy a boat.

Hi Ian. Just a note to convey my thanks for completing the sale of "Osprey of Down" The Nimbus 380 Commander. As you know I had it with Offshore Powerboats for some time without much success. Thank you for your diligence, patience and professionalism during the process and be assured that I will recommend Boatshed poole to any of my friends who are in the market to either buy or sell. Once again. My sincere thanks

Recently had the pleasure of dealing with Anthony at Lymington Boatshed during the sale of our motorboat. Their commercial partnerships ensured we were visible on all the right websites, so crucially in front of the right buyers and within a handful of days interested parties began viewings. They provided common sense advice around pricing and any 'minor snagging jobs' that helped present our boat professionally to potential buyers. Anthony was always on hand to discuss things and was proactive and a pleasure to deal with throughout. Even towards completion when we hit a few issues with the sale he went over and above his remit to ensure everything went smoothly. Through Boatshed's central office all the paperwork was efficiently processed - it was all seamless. I can't recommend Anthony at the Boatshed team highly enough.

- Richard N | Boatshed Lymington

Hi Anthony, Thank you so much for your prompt and so efficient service. I cannot believe that you sold my boat within a week. Amazing.

- Ian | Boatshed Lymington

Anthony and Ian. Thank you so much for your help and advice which resulted in a successful and painless sale of Dasher. With best wishes.

- David | Boatshed Lymington

I just wished to take a few moments to be able to thank your team in its professional way that it has handled the sale of my boat. Anthony was extremely hands on, being generous with his time and offers to buy coffee. All in all what matters is that I sold my boat for the amount that I wanted, in which the Boatshed provided a service that I required and sold my boat for the price that I wanted. Anyone could not want more from a service, and one that I would definitely use in the future. Thanks again

- Nick | Boatshed Lymington

Thanks so much for assistance with the boat purchase. Super smooth and had a great time checking her out and chatting on the survey day. So excited for this purchase and must say boatshed pictures and videos (especially the VR cam!) were amazing for when we were looking so will 100% pass your names on! Will go through your recommendations below and hope to pass a wave when reach down south! :D Take care mate!

Hello Ian, Thank you so much for your unflinching efforts to sell our boat....especially at this difficult time. I'm so pleased we went with you... excellent choice!

- Moira Hoyes , Aug 2021 | Boatshed Scotland

After 24 months of almost no interest in our boat we moved to Tim Kingston at Boatshed and within weeks our yacht was sold. The service Boatshed provided was professional and we were kept informed on the sales process at all times. Tim and Boatshed then excellently facilitated all the necessary sales documentation brilliantly and with no hassle. I would thoroughly recommend Boatshed and Tim specifically on their services.
